I did it... finally.

Today I faced a fear...sewing buttonholes.

Oh boo hoo Ellie I hear you say so scary. Well for me it was. Being mostly self taught I have two little dresses in my UFO basket (it is a big basket) that needed buttons and buttonholes. So while Jnr and Baby Girl were off at the grandparents and Snr was on Little One duty I faced my fear. I was supposed to be catching up on some sleep but the sewing was calling me.

I can't show you too much of the actual item because it is part of a gift. But I just couldn't not share my victory be it small with blogland.


YAY for me today.

And this last one is another UFO that needed buttons and buttonholes. Not very happy with my button choice here but live and learn I say.

The longer we leave something the worse it gets! Well done. I love your label!

Oh yah for you! I bought a snap press to avoid them altogether! (hopefully!)

Love your labels and fabric choices. Isn't that pattern great? You've just reminded me that I have it.
